New Dehli – The Board of Control for Cricket in India says former Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi has been given a life ban for “misconduct and indiscipline” in running the cash-rich tournament.
The decision was taken at a special meeting in Chennai on Monday after a disciplinary committee report concluded that he was responsible for irregularities in various financial and administrative matters of the IPL, which is run by the BCCI.
The announcement came less than an hour after the Supreme Court dismissed a petition from Modi seeking a stay on the meeting.
Modi, who is based in London, has denied all allegations.
Modi, who was instrumental in putting together the cash-rich IPL in 2008, was removed from the posts of BCCI vice president and IPL commissioner three years ago. – Sapa-AP
